  1. Thank you for the tour! Love the new papers that I saw throughout. Love the Fiskars “love” punch!

  2. Thanks Kristina and SSS for this really fun video tour. I love the Maya
    road twine and of course those dies, each and every one!

  3. WOW what a show. It’s hard to take all the wonders in. I noticed a couple of new (to me) companies Some Odd Girl and Hemptique(spelling). Love seeing some of my favs too- Hero Arts, Penny Black Graphic 45. All the companies seem to be out doing each other with new products. Can’t wait to see the new Distress color in person. It looks yummy. I could go on and on. Thanks for the video highlights.

  4. Wow, so many wonderful and amazing products to look forward to this year. I don’t know if I could pick just one but I will say I was pretty fond of the Sunny Days Ahead papers and the new Penny Black stamps and dies I saw and wanted them all! LOL

  5. Great video. I was intrigued by all the Penny Black cards that were done in a watercolor effect. They looked beautiful. Can’t wait to see those new stamps.

  6. Thanks Kristina and SSS for the video. It’s exciting to see all the new lines. I cant pick just one product as everything new looks so yummy!

  20. So much goodness. My wallet is already groaning with what is sure to be some heavy lifting. lol But I have to say…I’m excited about Fiskar’s word punch! For some reason, my word dies don’t seem to come out well with my big shot, so this is an exciting option!
